How can you learn the keys to achieving the expressions of your potential? How do you make your levels of professional performance second to none? How do you acquire the closely guarded secrets that distinguish outstanding and successful people from the simply average? The answer lies in the time-honored tradition of mentoring. While much has been written about mentoring, few if any books uncover the strategies and methods to finding mentors for every aspect of one's life. Mentoring reveals the secrets to achieving high degrees of success: personal, professional, economic, and emotional through a series of stories and letters illustrating the mentoring relationship. Floyd Wickman and Terri Sjodin (as mentor and protege themselves in writing this book) prove that mentoring can be an important catalyst to success. The authors worked together for five years researching and developing the work, calling upon mentoring experiences of other highly successful and fulfilled people. Mentoring relationships are not only available to a lucky few. As this book explains, anyone can maximize their potential with the help of the right mentor. Readers will discover how to create a successful mentoring lifestyle, including: four basic reasons why mentoring works and the benefits of having a mentor; how to select a good mentor or protege; 16 laws of mentoring; how to involve mentors in every facet of your life from family to fitness to spiritual development; secrets for effectively working with and developng a protege; creating meaningful synergy between mentor and protege.
